D-Link Home Network Camera Giveaway

Today I'm reviewing the D-Link DCS-932L Wireless N Day/Night Home Network Camera, and I have to tell you, I love it.  I've never been much of a 'techie person' (though I am working on that a little bit more these days), and even I could handle this set-up.  I have to say also...that while this camera definitely has a lot of potential uses, it's also...well, fun!



It's easy enough to set up, right out of the box.  With do-it-yourself installation it's as easy as unpacking the box, putting the software (CD) in your computer, and going through the Run Wizard (for Windows or Mac).  Then the fun begins.  The camera works with an Ethernet cable, or wirelessly, and the web server is built right into the camera (which means you don't have to have it hooked up to your computer, after the initial set-up) for it work.  The camera also has infrared built in so you can survey in daylight, artificial light, or in the darkest of the night.  Our home is in the country, and in the broad daylight we get deer, turkeys, cranes, little critters, and the like, walking through our yard at will.  I have always wondered what kinds of critters are running around out there at night, and soon we're going to find out.  :)



You can use this D-Link Cloud Camera for a myriad of reasons...some that come to mind are watching the baby sleep, looking in on the house while you're on vacation, keeping an eye on the toddlers who are in another room, watching who comes through the entryway of your home, looking at the outside of your house while you're inside or away from home, and so on and so forth.  The camera also has audio, so you can hear what's going on if you want to, in addition to seeing it.



There are many advanced options that you can utilize from the software if you choose to, including one feature I found on their website that I think is really cool, which is the split screen feature...meaning if you have more than one camera set up, you can survey them all at once on one screen (awesome!). You can also opt for instant email notification, which is another advanced feature you can select that I thought was ideal.

When it's time to view whatever you have under surveillance, you can look on the mydlink website, your laptop, Tablet, Android phone, or iPhone.  It has a VGA (640 x 480) resolution, which allows for a clear picture to show up on your mobile devices; and if you want to utilize it, there is a 4x digital zoom that allows you to get a closer look, if you want one.

So...I'm thinking this D-Link DCS-932L Cloud camera would be a GREAT gift idea (it's unique, fun, useful, and probably unexpected, but so many people would love it!).  You can buy one here, purchase it at online retailers (such as Amazon), or find a retailer here.

You can also check out D-Link more by viewing their website.  Or you can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Linked in, and/or YouTube.

Now on to the giveaway... D-Link (thank you, D-Link!!) has offered to give the same camera I reviewed to one lucky Mail4Rosey reader!

This giveaway will only run for two weeks, so be sure to get your entry in!  Like I said above, this would be a great gift idea, but I think once you take a look at it and do a little research on it (and see how easy it is to use!), there is a good chance that you're going to want to keep it for yourself!

Please enter on the Rafflecopter below, and good luck!

I would love this product: DCS-932L mydlink-enabled Wireless N Day/Night Home Network Camera. Thank you for the review--sometimes things sound too good to be true in their advertising, but now I feel as if this is something that would live up to its promises.
